Controversial “Carmichael Show” Episode Set To Air After Hitting Network Nerves
“The Carmichael Show” will be on full woke mode this week, covering the topic of mass-shootings. The episode was set to earlier, ironically the same day a mass shooter struck in Virginia at the GOP congressional baseball team practice according to Deadline. The incident left five people injured, including congressman Steve Scalise. Networks were in a tizzy over it and snatched the episode right away.
We spoke to comedian Lil Rel Howery, who says the network had tried to cut two different versions of the same episode for the east and west coasts and even filmed a P.S.A. with Jerrod Carmichael and the President of NBC to warn viewers of its woke AF content. The Carmichael show is known for showing the ironies in everyday controversy.
We’re willing to bet they’re take on mass shooters makes Amerikkka queasy because it unravels stereotypes.
Anyhow, the episode airs on NBC this Wednesday, June 28 at 9 p.m.
